Over the past year, the global pandemic has challenged us in ways that we did not think possible. For Black people and other communities of color, those challenges have been heightened by preexisting racial disparities and inequities. For others, these compounding issues have created a call for meaningful action and immediate progress toward racial equity. Businesses are stepping up with a strengthened commitment to make concrete changes to the way they do business in an effort to advance racial equity around our region.
The Business Equity for Indy (BEI) initiative, a joint venture between the Central Indiana Corporate Partnership (CICP) and the Indy Chamber in collaboration with the Indianapolis Urban League, was formed in response to these calls for action. The initiative is now looking to brand its work and they need a logo to start. BEI wants to involve Black creatives and other communities of color to develop a logo that visually reflects the emotion and effort needed to advance racial equity and justice in the city. The top three finalists will receive prize money and the opportunity to tell their story publicly.
The Business Equity for Indy initiative has EXTENDED THE DEADLINE for logo submissions to June 25. Creatives of color are encouraged to watch the replay of this brief Q&A session for a better understanding of the BEI initiative and the logo criteria.
